If you clip the eagle's wings, it will never soar


Pounding, Rushing.
Running, Pulsing.
Gasp for air,
Need to breathe!
Reach for light,
I cannot see!
I'm suffocating,
Smothered in fear.
I have no where to go.
These scorching tears,
They never leave.
Inside my heart,
Inside my mind,
Locked away
Is this dark.
Close my eyes,
Lose my mind.
My fear of sleep
Is my fear of dreams.
Haunting faces
Chilling scenes.
I cannot escape from this thing called sleep.
You wake me up;
I shy away.
My slumber forgotten,
All I can think:
I'm shaking.
Shivering.
Sweating.

My Skin, it's searing.


The author's comments:
They say all who can write also face their inner demons. By night or by day, they do not say. Sadly, I suffer by night and the suffering is never very pleasant.
